Sundial House by Eugene Stoltzfus Architect
This country house designed by Eugene Stoltzfus Architect represents an urban concept of two houses unified by the street between them.
Description by Eugene Stoltzfus Architect
This country house is developed from the urban concept of two houses unified by the street between them. The integration of the site positioning, the floor plans, the 3 dimensional form, the massing of masonry and the orientation toward the view and the sun, give this passive solar house its distinctive character.
The South House includes the kitchen, dining room, and living room. It is open to the street, with no interior walls. The North House is divided into private rooms: bedrooms, office, laundry, and bathrooms.
The street acts as an Atrium and contains circulation in 3 dimensions: across between the two houses, lengthwise from entrance to back door, and vertically by stair from the basement to the ground floor and on up to the second floor. The Atrium roof holds the skylight with the center rod whose shadow allows the inhabitants of this house to tell time on the walls and floors of this perfectly oriented house.
